    I bought a tuxedo at a thrift store that fits perfectly, and I am assuming it is a tailcoat tuxedo. The only problem is that there is no tail attached to it but instead a zipper along the bottom where a tailcoat would be attached. Does anyone know if there is a place I can go to online that I can buy a tailcoat, or a place that would make one to fit?

    Pointless unless you can find matching fabric.

    Making one to fit will be expensive! You will need to locate the matching zipper (good luck) and fabric just to start. I guess you could remove the zipper all together but you're still looking at quite a bit of cash.

    A tailcoat with tails that zip on and off? That's highly unusual. I don't believe I've ever seen that before.
